Considering the tremendous passenger traffic growth at the Kolhapur airport, the Airports Authority of India has undertaken the work to develop the airport for enhanced capacity. The development project includes the construction of a new terminal building, strengthening of the existing runway, an extension of the runway, and the construction of a new apron and an isolation bay.

Kolhapur Airport has been identified for RCS operations under the UDAN scheme and is presently connected to Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, and Tirupati. Recently, the Airport Aerodrome license has been upgraded to 24*7 flight operations.

The new terminal building is being constructed in an area of 4000 sqm and will be able to process 300 passengers during peak hours. With 10 check-in counters, the Terminal will be equipped with all modern passenger amenities. The building will be a Four-Star GRIHA-rated energy-efficient building with sustainability features. The interiors of the terminal building will reflect the art and culture of local culture & heritage. The giant archways at the front façade of the new terminal building are influenced and derived from the commonly used arches in the heritage structures like Maharaja Palace, Bhavani Mandap, and Panhala fort of Kolhapur city.

More than 60% of the work for an extension of the terminal building is complete and the building will be ready by 31st March 2023. Work on upgrading the airside facilities is completed. Apart from this, a new Air Traffic Control Tower is also being constructed to cater to future traffic growth. A parking area with a capacity of 110 cars and 10 buses is also part of the development activities.

Kolhapur city is situated on the banks of the Panchganga river and is surrounded by Sahyadri mountain ranges. It is a city known for its historical forts, temples, and royal places of erstwhile royals. Kolhapur is one of Maharashtra’s most agriculturally advanced districts and is known for being a leading district in the Agro-based industry. It is also a front runner for manufacturing engineering products, refined sugar, and textiles.

The new world-class terminal building of the airport will enhance the connectivity to this industrial city, boosting the tourism industry of the region. The increased connectivity will not only create new employment opportunities for the local community provide access to better educational and medical facilities.
